Kazakhstan health ministry has denied that it had recorded cases from unknown pneumonia in the country.
However, Kazakhstan health ministry, on July 10, 2020, officially clarified that the claim regarding the outbreak of new pneumonia was untrue and acknowledged the presence of viral pneumonia of unspecified etiology but said the warning issued by the Chinese embassy did not correspond to reality.
World Health Organization(WHO) also asserted that the reported pneumonia is being examined and stated that the pneumonia cases might reflect the undiagnosed cases of COVID-19 infection.
The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
